Fodor's Review

There are many gorgeous buildings in Crown Heights, but few residential streets are as beautiful and varied as Dean Street (especially between Bedford and New York avenues). Unique brownstones reflect Italianate, Edwardian, Victorian, and Renaissance Revival styles, to name just a few. Walking east from Bedford, take note of the ornate ironwork balcony at 1162 Dean Street and the several wood-frame houses starting at No. 1208; they’re thought to be some of the oldest in the area, dating back to the 1860s. At the corner of Dean and New York Avenue, compare the two churches across the street from one another: the neo-Byzantine Hebron French-speaking Seventh-day Adventist Church and the redbrick Union United Methodist Church by J. C. Cady, who also designed the southern wing of the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan.
